The Painting of My Life
I always tell my art students, "The greatest art work is your own life, what you include in and what you include out." The Yankee baseball catcher, Yogi Berra said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." I took it and then took it again. This is a book about growing up and my spiritual development in a confusing world. This is the painting of my life.
